In a refreshed warning this week, the government discusses Cronobacter contamination, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reminded consumers is sometimes found in powdered infant formulas, and to a lesser degree herbal teas, starches and powdered milk.
Formerly known as Enterobacter sakazakii — a germ found naturally in the environment that can survive in very dry conditions — the pathogen can be particularly dangerous to infants, the CDC reports. Infants who are fed formulas made from powders should be taken to a doctor if they develop symptoms of Cronobacter infection. Cronobacter has been found in various dry foods, such as formula, powdered milk, herbal teas and starches. It has also been found in sewer water and may be found in other places, too, according to the CDC. Adults don’t often get sick from Cronobacter infection, but it can be deadly in infants.

Volume 1, 2011, Pages 979–986 11th International Congress on Engineering and Food (ICEF11) Edited By George Saravacos, Petros Taoukis, Magda Krokida, Vaios Karathanos, Harris Lazarides, Nikolaos Stoforos, Constantina Tzia and Stavros Yanniotis Abstract The microbiological criteria established in the EC 2073/2005 for Cronobacter in powder infant formula (PIF) are based on two-class attribute sampling plans, where the sample results are qualitative (sample indicates presence or absence) and the lot is rejected if any sample is positive.
The performance of a sampling plan is revealed by its Operating Characteristic (OC) curve which plots the probability of acceptance against possible values of proportion defective.

Product | December 17, 2014 By Staff Lab M’s fast-establishing range of Pinnacle™ pre-prepared agar plates now includes Cronobacter sakazakii Isolation Medium (CSIM) for added convenience when testing infant milk products.
Cronobacter sakazakii (formerly known as Enterobacter sakazakii) is a member of the Enterobacteriaceae family and has been associated with serious outbreak infections in neonates (premature infants) fed on infant formula milk. Pinnacle™ CSIM uses Lab M’s established Harlequin™ CSIM (ISO). This media formulation is currently recommended as part of the protocol under ISO/TS 22964:2006(E) for the isolation of Enterobacter sakazakii from milk and milk products. Although C. sakazakii rarely causes infections in immunocompetent adults, it has been implicated in sepsis, meningitis and necrotising enterocolitis in neonates. C. sakazakii appears to constitutively express high levels of α-glucosidase.

AEM 23/10/15 A Novel Bacteriophage Targeting Cronobacter sakazakii is a Potential Biocontrol Agent in Foods. + Author Affiliations Cronobacter sakazakii is an important pathogen with high mortality in infants.
Due to its occasional antibiotic resistance, a bacteriophage approach could be an alternative effective method for the control of this pathogen. To develop a novel biocontrol agent using bacteriophages, the C. sakazakii-infecting phage CR5 was newly isolated and characterized. Interestingly, this phage exhibited efficient and relatively durable host lysis activity. In addition, a specific gene knockout study and subsequent complementation experiment revealed that this phage infected the host strain using the bacterial flagella. ↵#To whom correspondence should be addressed: Dr. Copyright © 2015, American Society for Microbiology.

Prof. BMC 31/07/15 Ingested Salmonella enterica, Cronobacter sakazakii, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Listeria monocytogenes: transmission dynamics from adult house flies to their eggs and first filial (F 1 ) generation adults. All parental house flies used in our experiments were observed feeding from contaminated food and the presence of each pathogen was confirmed from all alimentary canals dissected from randomly selected parental females.
Although the focus of this study was not to evaluate the dynamics of the parental population of adult house flies, anecdotal evidence suggests that the feeding and mating behaviors were not influenced by the ingestion of bacteria, and although not measured, we did not observe apparent increases in the mortality of parental flies or reductions in their oviposition rate, when compared to control groups.
We observed clusters of house fly eggs on the oviposition substrate approximately 10-16 h after they were placed on the mesh of all jars. Probability of bacterial transmission to house fly eggs Our study reports the probability of the presence of the target pathogen in a sample containing pooled house fly eggs laid by several females fed from contaminated food.

PLOS 25/06/13 Rapid Detection and Simultaneous Genotyping of Cronobacter spp. (formerly Enterobacter sakazakii) in Powdered Infa. Cronobacter spp. is an emerging pathogen that causes meningitis, sepsis, bacteremia, and necrotizing enterocolitis in neonates and children.
The present study developed an assay integrating real-time PCR and high resolution melting (HRM) analysis targeting the OmpA gene for the specific detection and rapid identification of Cronobacter spp. (formerly Enterobacter sakazakii) in powdered infant formula. Eleven Cronobacter field isolates and 25 reference strains were examined using one pair of primers, having the accuracy of 100% in reference to conventional methods. The assay was proved to be highly sensitive with a detection limit of 102 CFU/ml without pre-enrichment, and highly concordant (100%) when compared with ISO-IDF 22964 in 89 actual samples.
The method performed for Cronobacter spp. detection was less than 24 h, drastically shortened, compared to several days using standard culturing method, it is probe-free and reduces a risk of PCR carryover.
